Why is it, that Sefer Vayikra is the first chumash taught to children before they are taught Sefer Bereishis? Chazal say: “let the pure ones come and talk about purity”. This means that because Sefer Vayikra talks about korbanos, which leads a person to purity, then the pure ones (i.e. children) should first talk about these concepts. Baruch Hashem after producing, composing, and arranging many albums, I have decided to share my music in a venue that holds a very special place in my heart: choirs. Let “the pure ones” sing Hashem’s praises. Over the past 30 years, I have been attending and working for Camp Agudah in different capacities, including producing the choirs for the Cantata, a play that is performed a day before Tisha B’av. The producer of this truly moving play is a rebbe of mine, Rabbi Shimon Finkelman, Shlita. Interspersed throughout the play, I would lead the choir that sang songs a cappela. I must tell you, that the success of those choirs must be due to Rabbi Finkelman’s zechusim (merits). Some of my nicest songs and lyrics were composed for those cantatas. I directly attribute the success of those songs to his influence on me. Many of those songs became big hits in Camp Agudah and four of them have been included on this cd. I thank Hashem for allowing me to reach this milestone of sharing my music through the pure voice of children. Without further ado, I present to you The New York Boys Choir.
I HOPE YOU ENJOY!
